Dear brothers and sisters,
We are pleased to announce that, as part of the annual meeting of priests during the Easter octave, the Holy Father has just granted a private audience to the Emmanuel Community.
This audience will take place on Saturday, April 7th at 10am at the Papal Household, Vatican.
We are in thanksgiving for this great opportunity to meet the successor of Peter, to entrust him our Community with solicitude and prayer, to assure him of our communion in the service of the Christ and of His Church and to receive from him words of light to go ahead.
We are well aware that many of us will not be able to consider travel, for geographical, financial, family or professional reasons… For those who cannot be present at this audience, we assure you of our prayers on this occasion: you will be present with us with the Pope!
Thank you also for your prayers so that the whole complex organization of this meeting will be at its best and bear fruit for the whole Community and for the Church.
Some of you might be able to reach Rome on the evening of Friday the 6th to attend the Saturday audience. You are welcome! However, you will have to ensure your own journey, accommodation and logistics.
We are asked by the Prefecture of the Papal Household to communicate the exact number of participants without delay. For this, thank you, to those who are planning to participate in the audience to confirm your presence as soon as possible on this link Audience registration (sign-up form) before Tuesday, March 27, 2018.
The latest practical informations about this audience will be communicated to all registered participants later by email.
In the joy of Holy Week, close by, we assure you of our fraternal prayer.
